About the speaker
Beth Hill is originally from the UK, is a mother of two sons and winner of the 2018 Arts Access Aotearoa Accolade award.
Beth has been making Art about otherness, radical empathy and her search to find somewhere she fits in for most of her life. She will be joining us at the end of this month to talk on August’s theme, JUSTICE.
Six years ago, Beth found herself working inside the walls of Northern Region Corrections Facility where she surprisingly stopped feeling so much of a square peg! Operating under the tag of Redemption Arts and Education Services, Beth and her team offer access to creative spaces and activities that support the cohort on site to develop self esteem, new ways of communicating, soft skills and a passion for the arts. Facilitating and developing opportunities for the men on site at NRCF has changed her creative pathway and although she still makes work she now expands her creativity advocating for her prison artists and championing the transformative power of the arts in Corrections.
